Girolamo Savonarola
Programme until 1998

The Region of Tuscany, with the help of the City Councils, Provinces, public boards for the arts and the University of Tuscany, has organized and coordinated a series of events that open this spring and continue until the end of 1998, to celebrate the fifth centenary of the death of Girolamo Savonarola. Together with the two large exhibitions on Fra' Bartolomeo in Florence and Fra' Paolino in Pistoia, painters who worked at the time of Savonarola, we also include a short list of the initiatives that have been planned throughout Tuscany for next two years; they follow a historical and artistic itinerary that is intended to repropose and deepen knowledge of the work and the importance of Savonarola.

Savonarola itineraries in Tuscany. This is a specially prepared route that includes didactic displays and various informative instruments that, by linking up churches, convents and monasteries, make it possible to reconstruct the effect of Savonarola's passage and influence on places like Bibbiena, Montepulciano, Borgo San Lorenzo and San Miniato. The local administrations will add to these initiatives by preparing their own special itineraries. Seminars and conventions. Savonarola and politics in Florence in October; Savonarola and the "tyranny" at Pistoia; Savonarola and music at Siena. These are some of the subjective seminars that will be held in various places in Tuscany and conclude with an international convention in Florence on the study of Savonarola, planned for the spring of 1998. Editorial programme. The acts drawn up during the seminars and the international convention, as well as the exhibition catalogues, will all be published, together with a series of videos, CD-Roms and a CD of "Savonarolian" music.
